Formats 7 inch

Based out of Minneapolis, Sukpatch were at the forefront of an emerging trend of indie rock with lo-fi electronic and hip-hop beats. The duo recorded their tracks at home, embracing the aesthetics of their low budget studio equipment and the grainy, dusty tones of their loops and samples. Appropriately, their initial recordings were passed along on cassettes – eventually reaching the Pacific Northwest and finding a home on Seattle indie label Slabco. After releasing three records on Slabco, Sub Pop released the band’s Stolen Chrome / Bubble Staff 7-inch in 1998 for the third installemnt of their newly revived Singles Club. The boom-bap beats against the group’s clean guitar riffs is a dazzling combination, somewhat predicting the rock and electronic crossover that would boom in the next decade with acts like Grandaddy and RJD2.
